Complete Seventh Season (A.K.A. The Complete Seventh Season outside North America) is a SpongeBob SquarePants DVD box set that was released on December 6, 2011 and contains all 50 episodes and all 12 shorts from season 7.
Currently retired critic Josh Rode of the DVD Verdict was unfavorable on the episodes featured, regarding the whole season as "by far the least consistently funny season of the venerable cartoon." "The sad fact is the show's greatest strength is also its greatest weakness. [...] The episode plots can't help but be somewhat repetitive. Most of Season Seven's best moments involve the nearly evil genius Plankton [...] Mr. Krabs' snail-napping for the sake of loose change is also funny, and the Mermaidman and Barnacleboy episodes—while not as fresh as they once were—are still better than average. [...] The titular sponge and his best friend Patrick have become the least engaging parts of the show, which is a problem since they dominate screen time. Patrick has been dumbed down too far [...] As for SpongeBob, he acts like a happy, fun-loving, not-overly-intelligent sponge, but has entirely lost the naïveté which has long been the basis of his charm." He was also critical of the "invariably poorly written and arranged" songs, and praised the shorts featured for being "far funnier than the actual episodes they're advertising." His verdict was "not guilty," due to the episodes' appeal to younger audiences.
